HAVANA, Cuba.- The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and Cuba celebrated on Wednesday the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations, with the opening of an exhibition at the Museum of Revolution.

The exhibition is made up of books, publications, historic photographs and craftwork from the Asian nation, which has more than 5,000 years of history, showing the advances of its economy and culture and its deeply-rooted traditions.

Kwon Sung Chol, ambassador to Havana, highlighted that that event of five decades ago laid the foundations of friendship and cooperation between the two peoples, and reiterated his country’s solidarity towards Cuba and its support for the island in the defense of its revolutionary principles and the struggle for its independence.

Juan Jose Leon, vice-president of the Cuban Committee for the Reunification of Korea, warned about the severe tensions caused by the US imperialism in the Asian peninsula and the threats of a terrible nuclear war.

He confirmed that Cubans will continue working for the independent and unconditional reunification of the Korean homeland and wished the best for the future of the two countries.
